In the old times, royalty never had to wait for service. We are far removed from the era of monarchs, but modern dental technology has reduce waiting times for several types of treatments. On such treatment is the dental crown.
Dental crowns restore damaged teeth by providing them with a protective “cap” that improves tooth strength and aesthetics. Cracked or damaged teeth are the most susceptible to infections. Crowns rectify that problem. However, they take quite some time to create.
Well…before CEREC that is!
Temecula CEREC Crowns Procedures
Before CEREC, dental patients had to wait between a few days to few of weeks for their crown to be created. Usually impressions of the tooth (or teeth) were sent to a lab away from the dental office. Now, that is a thing of the past. CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) captures a 3D image of the tooth. Next, the computer software analyzes the size, shape, and contour of the tooth by comparing it to the patient’s other teeth. A computerized model is designable within an hour’s time—fully ready to be placed and bonded. During the CEREC process, patients benefit from not having their dentist use impression substances, which can be extremely messy. Instead, a clean, quick and extremely accurate crown fixture is possible with CEREC.
